Two Year Anniversary - Washington DC

The Mrs wanted to go somewhere to celebrate our two year wedding anniversary and we found a good deal on flights to our nation's capital using miles. With the baby due in 3 months and a new home built in ~6 months this will definitely be our last trip for quite a while. I think I said the same thing about the trip to Australia, so I may say this again in a couple months.

Anyhow, it was an enjoyable trip filled with good food, good fun, and good company. We saw all the usual DC sites in all their splendor and glory. But rather than bore you with the same old, same old I thought I would share our unique experiences.

For starters, we were pretty sure Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (President of Iran) stayed in our hotel and followed us around while we were site seeing.  After further photographic review it probably was not him, but for a time it was the strangest celebrity siting of our lives.

On our last night in DC we spent time with a good friend and watched the latest Harry Potter movie. The movie was of course fantastic ... but as we left we were treated to a second show outside the theater by DCFD. About 3-4 fire trucks with sirens blaring roared up the street outside the movie theater and blocked off the street. You would have thought a whole city block was on fire but from what we could tell it was a heroic, roof-top kitty rescue. It was too cold to wait around much longer to confirm this as true, but we certainly did not see any flames or smoke.

All in all another great trip. For all the real pictures see my album here.
